Director’s Pinot Noir is made from a blend of Carneros and Russian River Valley fruit. This wine, which combines fruit from two appellations, has been designated “Sonoma Coast.” Its Carneros fruit boasts notes of spice and earth while its Russian River fruit offers density and richness. The growers harvest in the early morning hours so that the fruit retains its vibrancy as it is placed into open-top fermenters. Daily punch-downs of the must gently extract the color and flavors as fermentation progresses. Finally, the winery use Burgundy-style barrels for maturation. The 2014 Director’s Pinot Noir boasts a beautiful perfume, velvety texture and great density. You’ll find scents of raspberries, cherries, spice box and warm woods along with luscious flavors of strawberries, blackberries and plums. Enjoy it paired with pork tenderloin, brisket or a mushroom and gruyère tart.
